US Airforce in Japan

The United States Forces Japan, or USFJ (在日米軍 Zainichi Beigun?) refers to the various divisions of the United States Armed Forces that are stationed in Japan. Under the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan, the United States is obliged to defend Japan in close cooperation with the Japan Self-Defense Forces for maritime defense, ballistic missile defense, domestic air control, communications security (COMSEC), and disaster response operations.

Every year the various bases hold open days, friendship days and displays for the general public. These events are very popular with the largest attracting over 100,000 people on a weekend. It is a good chance to get up and close to some of the military hardware they have in the region.
